UT Health San Antonio's team of board-certified pulmonologists creates one of the most comprehensive pulmonary medicine practices in the region. Patients and their families rely on our experts to live and breathe easier.

Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are two of the most common breathing disorders affecting children and adults. Our lung specialists provide reliable care for these types of breathing disorders.

Successful asthma and COPD care is dependent upon the expertise and skill of our lung specialists. We offer advanced technology, modern therapies and reliable research to help our patients continue living full, active lives.

Comprehensive asthma and COPD care

Our pulmonologists take an in-depth and collaborative approach to diagnosing and managing asthma or COPD. Through open and consistent communication with our patients, their primary care physician and other specialists, including thoracic surgeons, we deliver a treatment plan specifically tailored to effectively treat these conditions.

We offer more time during our appointments to thoroughly review medications, discuss new or worsening symptoms and address any other concerns. Patients will receive a Lung Care Action plan with information on how to avoid flare-ups, treat symptoms and effectively use inhalers, nebulizers and other therapies. Our top priority is the patient’s comfort and confidence in their treatment plan.
